AKIRA SAITO graduated from Waseda University in 1966. He later attended the University of California at Berkeley where he got a Master’s Degree in Journalism in 1968, and joined the Yomiuri Shimbun, where he served in New York and Washington D.C. He returned to the Tokyo office in 1970 as a Foreign News Department staffer and was later posted to the city desk. In 1976, he returned to Washington, covering two widely-publicized sandals – Lockheed and Korea-gate – as well as two presidential elections, later becoming Washington bureau chief until 1996. Although he has “semi-officially” retired, he still considers himself an “active journalist” despite his age.
